Making yourself irresistible to employers
Abridged: Star Tribune
MINNEAPOLIS, MN — If you’ve been passed over for promotion, rejected for the job of your dreams or lost enthusiasm in your current career, maybe it’s time to go back and add the skills and education that would make you irresistible to employers.
“We see many adult learners return because they are passionate about a career change and opportunities for advancement,” says Dara Hagen, director of career services at Century College. It’s becoming very common for students to return to school because without it many are not eligible for a promotion and, in some cases, would not even be eligible to apply for the job they now hold.
Lack of a bachelor’s degree can also limit your ability to move to other opportunities, which is becoming increasingly important. Once you have a degree, your career options take off. Returning to school does take sacrifices, and it is hard work, but the sense of satisfaction and the skills developed can pay off not only in career progression but in your own level of satisfaction with your life.
